Is a Wedding "JUST" a Day?
We are firm believers that we shouldn't all be caught up in all the wedding hullabaloo. That's why we encourage you all to be inquisitive with the traditions dictated to you, and that's also the reason why we also encourage you to learn how to eliminate unnecessary expenses and only prioritize those that will really last a lifetime.

But to go as far as to say that a wedding is "JUST" a day? We'd like to hear what you guys think of this.

Every bride whether they prefer to have a simple civil wedding, a lavish church wedding, or a whole week of celebration, should be able to celebrate it the way you would want to celebrate it. Correct? One night, I heard someone getting super upset that a friend decided to "JUST" have a civil wedding--to her, it was like a sin to do so. Which was a bit sad, really.

Here's my own opinion and you are all open to form your own: A wedding is not "JUST a day". How can it JUST be a day when you are about to marry the love of your life? How can it JUST be a day when it symbolizes a milestone in a woman's life? A day you've dreamt all your life? You have every right to make your wedding your own special day. "JUST" a day? To even insult what a wedding stands for, to insult a bride who wants to make her wedding her own, is a form of bride bullying. No to bride bullying!

Now I know of people who don't believe in marriage or in weddings--heck there are even some who don't believe in having kids! But they say that it is just their own personal view and they respect those that do believe in the institution. To each his own, but without trying to pull others down.

Apart from the couples who want to get married and want to make a big deal out of it, there's also the people who make weddings possible. Do you guys remember the scene in The Devil Wears Prada when Anne Hathaway's character found fashion to be shallow? And then Meryl Streep explained to her how fashion drives businesses, puts food on the table for those who work in the industry, etc. etc. Then I think of all the wedding artists who work in this industry, trying to make an honest living out of the talents/specialized jobs that they can do that are related to weddings. And then I go back again to this Devil Wears Prada scene and I can't help think it's the same principle.

What do you guys think? Is a wedding "JUST" a day? Have you no right to make it special the way you would define it for what it is?

Discuss! But gentle reminder please, let's not go as far as mentioning other people or pulling other people down. Just a friendly debate okay? :)

  1. huwaw it's been awhile since a controversial post rb! hihihihihi juicy!

    i think it's hypocritical to say that a wedding is just a day. if it's just a day, then don't get flowers, don't get made up, don't buy a gown. just go to the city hall and sign the contract to bind yourself to the guy you want to marry. but do we really do this? no! even those who say they are on a tight budget, still want to add up a lot of elements into their wedding to the point that they have to add more budget. keeping it realz!

  2. No matter how simple or over the top the wedding is, it is still a day the couple will remember for the rest of their lives-- how can that day just be any ordinary day? :)

  3. Yes, I agree that a wedding day is just a day. Just like a debut is also just a day. I baptismal day is just a day. A birthday is just a day. Lahat yan days lang! Pero walang basagan ng trip!

  4. I think that we all live for days like this. And when I say this I mean a day like a wedding. But to what extent? Maybe one will say hey it's just a wedding day because the bride is making it sound like it's the end of the world if she doesn't get what she wants? Or maybe, someone will say it's just a wedding day because she has angsts?

  5. Ang cute nga comic strip. That's my comment :)

  6. A wedding is "just" a day for those who don't care and don't matter.
